PHOTO: Japan flew to Brazil in a Pokemon plane

By Tom Fornelli |

The Japanese National Team arrived in Brazil for the World Cup on Wednesday, and it did so in style.

Well, maybe not in style, but in a style. What I'm trying to say is that the Japanese flew in a Pokemon plane.

You remember Pokemon, don't you? There were a few years there in the late 90s when Pokemon was all the rage. Since then it's died down a bit in the States, but it's still huge in Japan. So huge that Japan chose Pikachu as it's official World Cup mascot.

Maybe if they hurry the United States can counter Japan's Pokemon power move with some Disney or Pixar characters.
